Road to 150: Best Things To Do In The Yukon

In this video, we share some of the best things to do in the Yukon, including Whitehorse, Dawson, Kluane National Park, and more!

Welcome to the Yukon!

Known for its dramatic landscapes, vast wilderness, and the famous Klondike Gold Rush, the Yukon has been capturing people’s imaginations for years. With four-legged creatures far outnumbering humans, Canada’s tallest mountain peaks, and the world’s largest non-polar glacier, the Yukon is a true paradise for adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts.

We started our journey in Whitehorse, the Yukon’s capital city. From here, we toured the SS Klondike, ate some delicious food in Whitehorse’s oldest buildings, saw heaps of wildlife, and caught a glimpse of the Northern Lights. We then went to Dawson, the worlds most famous gold rush town. While walking around the old boardwalk streets was incredible enough, we also went gold panning, toured the massive dredge #4, watched a Cancan show at the oldest casino in the country, and took a river cruise on a paddle-wheeler. We then drove up the infamous Dempster Highway all the way to Eagle Plains, past the Arctic Circle and into the Northwest Territories. After coming back and spending another night in Dawson, we drove to Kluane National Park for one of the most epic flightseeing tours we’ve ever experienced.

We explored the Yukon from August 16 – September 6th, 2017!

Canada’s Road to 150 is a 150-day Canada-wide multi-media road trip celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday by exploring the uniqueness of this country provincially and collectively while answering the question; What makes Canada special?

We will drive to and through every driveable province and territory, showcasing Canada’s natural beauty and regional attractions while interviewing Canadians of all cultures and backgrounds, including local celebrities, immigrants, refugees, and everyday rural and urban Canadians. Our aim is to dig deep into what makes Canada such an incredibly inspiring country while showing off the best of Canada’s tourism to Canadians and to the world.
